Jerk Store is a punk rock music fanzine from Cardiff, South Wales in the UK.

For its first four issues, this fanzine was called Black Lesbian President.


Alex co-wrote a short-lived scrappy cut'n'paste fanzine called Zineophobia in 2004 that ran for three issues. The first issue of Black Lesbian President was written during the summer of 2006, first available that August. Subsequent issues have been released approximately every six months since then.


"The majority of this zine is the story of Alex’s trip from the U.K. to Florida for The Fest in Gainesville, as if he were on a journey to Mecca. It’s Alex’s first time on a vacation by himself and it’s his first time in the states. His logistical bumblings are endearing and he is in awe of palm trees. It’s sort of like a punk rock version of the movie Elf, because it gives you fresh perspective on the shit that feels commonplace. There are also interviews with Lemuria and Blackbeard, and a bunch of zine and record reviews." - Review of issue four taken from Razorcake #46
